It’s NOT garbage-band

Garage Band new on old iPad

That’s me playing the (iPad GarageBand) bass. Believe it or not!

We bought a new app today! And it’s super-fun!

Yes, the new GarageBand for the iPad. Wow! It is sensitive to the amount of pressure from your fingers, recognizes when you drag the “strings” of the guitar or bass sideways, and myriad other seemingly impossible, powerful features.

Actually, as I understand it, since the surface of the iPad only can tell if you’re touching it or not, ya gotta wonder how it can be pressure-sensitive. I have it on God Good Authority (yes, from The Guru) that it senses minute changes in the position of the iPad that result from your pushing, and translate that into touch-pressure. So the total iPad movement is a proxy for screen touch-sensitivity. Cool!

Y’all know me, that I don’t tout apps and that I have little in the way of musical talent, but this, THIS, I recommend!
